Seeded my lawn about 4 months ago and its coming on pretty good, however it is slighty patchy in areas. I was wondering is it possible to seed the lawn regularly or not? I have been scuffing areas and seeding every 2 weeks or so. Is it worth just scattering seed all over every now and again also?

Grass has now been cut a 7-8 times so am i now able to distribute a lawn feed over it or will this scortch new germinating seed?

Hi

A Lawn must be at least 12 months old before feeding

hi pat
i ould agree that a lawn should be 12 months old before spraying for weeds but an autumn feed would benefit it great now especially seeing that there wont be any more seeding done until the spring if necessary.

Autumn is past and so is the time for feeding. Plants have gone into hibernation mode or will shortly do so. The leaves are just gone from all my trees except the birch. The lawn was cut very short yesterday in the only 'window of opportunity' I've had fo a month. It is still actually growing but the last thing it needs now is feeding. Think WINTER lads.

Green Beaver: let it be til the warm spring days. You can then scatter some more grass seed just before a day of rain and much of it is likely to germinate in the warmth of late April.
